David Cameron opened the tributes to Baroness Thatcher in the House of Commons.
The Prime Minister said she was an "extraordinary leader and extraordinary woman" who accomplished many great achievements that were viewed by most at the time as "inconceivable" for her gender.
In a glowing tribute lasting more than 11 minutes, Cameron praised to her political skill, her personal tenacity and the unique place she moulded for herself in history. He said:
"The say cometh the hour, cometh the man, will in 1979 came the hour and came the Lady, she made the political weather, she made history and let this be her epitaph: She made Britain great again. "
Labour leader Ed Miliband praised Baroness Thatcher for "breaking the mould".
“At each stage of her life she broke the mould - a woman at Oxford, when there was no a single woman in the university who held a full professorship.
"A woman chemist when most people assumed scientists had to be men, a woman candidate for Parliament in 1950 against the opposition of some in her party in Dartford at the age of only 24, a woman MP in 1959 when just 4% of MPs in the whole of this House were women."
David Cameron has said Baroness Thatcher’s coffin will be “draped with the flag she loved”.
“It is also right that next Wednesday Lady Thatcher’s coffin will be draped with the flag that she loved…
“[The funeral] will be a fitting tribute to a great Prime Minister.”
He described her as an “extraordinary” leader and an “extraordinary” woman.
“It is also right to remember that she spent her whole premiership and indeed much of her life under direct personal threat from the IRA.”
David Cameron has paid tribute to Baroness Thatcher as he opened proceedings on a special debate in the House of Commons.
The prime minister said: “In the long history of this Parliament, Margaret Thatcher was our first and so far our only woman prime minister…
“She defined and she overcame the great challenges of her age, and it is right that Parliament has been recalled to mark our respect.”
